Welcome to ALEX Printables!

Paper chains are a fun craft for kids to make and the results are beautiful!

We’ve designed ours specifically for little kiddos, so they’re super easy, yet allow for tons of creativity. Let them go wild with the crayons, creating different looks for our chain robots and princesses!

Print out and color multiple pages, then string them together to make one long chain. Decorate a bedroom or use them as a party garland. Or, invite some friends over for a play-craft date and some pretend play afterwards….princesses protected by the robots in a futuristic, techno castle!! Provide some suggestions and watch as their imaginations take over!

Welcome to ALEX Printables!

Inspired by our popular and cuddly Learn to Dress Monkey, this week’s printable craft is Build a Monkey! He’s lots of fun, way cool (check out his shades) and a great way to practice zipping, snapping, buttoning and lacing with your little one at the same time you’re having fun making the craft.

If  you have young kiddos, help by cutting out the pieces first and then let them paste away! Or, this can be an excellent opportunity for your child to hone both cutting and pasting skills.

Spin Art, bunting, DIY, crafts, paint, art, kid's arts & craftsI fondly remember making spin art with a little machine when I was a kid. So it’s been on my list of toys to get the kids for some time.

I knew they’d have just as much fun as I did watching the paper spin and the colorful paint splatter. And ALEX’s Fantastic Spinner definitely didn’t disappoint. The kids had so much fun spinning and squirting paint they didn’t want to stop.

We ended up with a whole bunch of colorful spin art that we had to find a creative DIY craft solution for.
